2017. The browser wars are in full force with Chrome, Safari, Edge, and Firefox all battling for market share. Resources are being poured into JavaScript rendering engines, and the language itself continues to grow and expand at a rate unseen anytime before to take advantage of modern machines…

An unfortunate casualty along the way – jQuery. Once dubbed the “only tool you need”, it has been rendered almost useless by modern day browsers.

Join Luke as he bids a fond, and somewhat embarrassing, goodbye to an old friend, and introduces some new methods that you can start using today on your sites and apps.
